Sarah Smith – Birth Circle, Founder

Sarah is a Registered Midwife, Childbirth Educator & Trainer, Blogger + proud Mum based in Devon, UK. With over a decade of experience both in the UK and the USA, she has welcomed countless babies earthside, and supported hundreds of women and families through the transformational process of childbirth and on in to parenthood.

She is passionate about sharing knowledge and empowering women and their partners to make informed decisions about their care, and to help them feel positive and excited about their upcoming experience.

Her passion for Midwifery started from a young age. Having always been fascinated by pregnancy and birth, and the body’s inner wisdom and ability to create and nurture life, the decision to become a Midwife was a natural progression. She began her training at the University of Nottingham and has worked in various locations, including London and Los Angeles. Her experience has spanned a wide variety of maternity care settings both in the private and public sector, from the home to the operating theatre, and everything in between.

10 years after qualifying as a Midwife, Sarah developed ‘The Birth Circle’ blog as she wanted to create a safe space to share positive, inspiring and empowering birth stories, to celebrate the amazing and intricate work of our bodies and babies, and the life-altering transformations that we go through as we evolve in to parents. She also wanted to create a platform to explore the lesser known and discussed issues surrounding pregnancy, birth and parenthood, and a place to share her own musings as a woman, mother and Midwife.

Sarah currently works as a community and hospital based Midwife within her local NHS trust, and in her spare time teaches ‘The Real Birth Workshop’ parent education classes to expectant parents, and trains other birth professionals to do the same. She also volunteers with her local Baby Bank Network to help support local families.

Birth is the epicenter of women’s power

Birth is a rite of passage of women. Their journey should be honored, their rights should be fiercely protected, and their stories should be shared

Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear
